Ambrosia smells fabulous. I know this for a fact because, after catching a waft from my friend, I bought a bottle (you can buy online from the Ecco Bella store) and I’ve been wearing for it exclusively for the past five days. And it is Certified Organic.

Ambrosia was created by Ecco Bella, a U.S. company founded by social entrepreneur Sally Malanga. From the website, “Ecco Bella is a pioneer in natural and organic beauty products. ….Since 1992, we have been dedicated to respectful science…  Sally began Ecco Bella, a name that means "Behold Beautiful!" to celebrate the beauty of her customers…[she]realized there was a world of plant-based ingredients including powerful nutraceuticals from ethical suppliers….

The Ecco Bella fragrances are…”made with sophisticated perfumery techniques using only real essential oils from flowers, fruits, herbs, and spices, our Parfums are concentrated as perfume and last longer than cologne.”

Well, what does Ambrosia smell like? First out of the bottle, an aromatic earthy accord of Egyptian geranium and black currant bud that melts into balsamic warmth as the herbal lavender note develops. And then ylang-ylang adds an exotic floral sweetness to the accord, like the waft of white flowers in the heat of a langourous summer day, and Ambrosia starts a sensuous journey into the heart.

The heart is warmed by spicy ginger, cardamom, and clove – the aromatic spices controlled with a creamy dark vanilla as Ambrosia begins to slide into the base accords. The vanilla sweetness becomes more honeyed, highlighting the gingery-spice and floral accords, and circling back to spotlight the lavender notes. Never gourmand, the dark vanilla creates aromatherapy magic with the deep patchouli note in the base, giving Ambrosia a sensual and  lingering seductive finish that lasts through several hours. Spicy-floral, vanillic, and earthy, rich but subtle, calming but sensual, I think Ambrosia is a beautiful vision of Nature’s olfactory tapestry

It smells fabulous.
